AllCode AWS DocumentDB

If you’re using AWS DocumentDB with Kubernetes and you want to connect to your DocumentDB cluster, you’ll first need to configure your AWS and Kubectl command line interfaces. You can learn how to use the AWS CLI and Kubectl here.

After you’re able to connect to your Kubernetes cluster via the AWS command line, you’ll need to spin up a new pod to enable you to connect to your Document DB instance. To spin up a new pod, use the following kubectl command

kubectl run -i --rm --tty mongo-client --image=mvertes/alpine-mongo --restart=Never --command -- /bin/bash

The run command will create and run a particular image,. The –image will be the docker container from This will create the mongo client pod. We’ll set the pod to never restart, and we will want to enter into the new pod with bash.
